    Say what? "Zero" shirt era MCIS hit in that really gross void that existed between the point of Seattle/Portland/Britpop being relevant things, and OK Computer being released (where just about everything changed, and you know it). It was a sad and dark time, and a stupidly-ambitious double LP just about filled the otherwise-pervasive vaccuum of suck. Did it fill it with one dude's outsized ego and 5000 tracks of guitars? Well, yeah – but it was way better than what was going to be the biggest record of the time had it not shown up, and it's not like I see the people that were too cool for Corgan by '95 out wearing their Portishead shirts lately.
